Think Rural. As we approach 2014 – facing new challenges and opportunities – it is more important than ever that we continue to be able to support and advocate on behalf of the rural healthcare safety net. CRHC is committed to connecting its members with resources and information to stay informed during this challenging time. Many of the programs and services directly affect the individuals and families living in these rural communities. For instance, a few months ago a rural site received a CRHC funded automated external defibrillator (AED). Shortly after receiving the AED, a male patient entered the clinic complaining of chest pains – coded – and the nurse immediately grabbed the AED. It is hard to think about the outcome had the AED not been installed. “Think Rural” is who we serve!
